About Me

Hey, I’m Chelsea.

PetersonFamily-152

In my family I am the youngest of 3 girls. If you asked my parents, they would say I was born talking. Karma had its ways and  I was blessed with three girls of my own who even out talk me.  In high school I was outgoing, silly, and loved cotton candy. I attended BYU-Idaho, got married in 2005, and had my first baby girl in 2007. When I got married I thought I married my best friend but we are even better friends now than ever before.  My children constantly teach me about life and patience, and are true gifts even on the toughest days.  Although its nice to have my photography business (which allows me to be creative and give to others), I wouldn’t trade being a mom for anything.

My mother is the most amazingly creative woman and passed much of that on to me.  So I give her full credit for any artistic ability I have. My father was a entrepreneur and business owner my entire life. For that I owe any part of me that can comprehend running a business.  For the most part I have dabbled in everything crafty, but have always had a secret interest in photography.  I never thought that I could actually ever do it, but my husband pushed me in the right direction when he bought me my first decent camera.  He might be regretting it now, but I am loving every minute!

I am an available light photographer, meaning I take what is given, indoors or outdoors. I make it work, and unlike many photographers these days, I actually love working with flash.  I like to keep things as simple as possible: my gear, my pricing and my locations.  However, my main priority is to give you a great experience so that you will want to tell your friends and come back for more yourself.  I have done everything from food, newborns, families, portraits and weddings.  After playing in all of those areas I decided that the two I enjoy the most are high school seniors and weddings.  So I now specialize in each of these.  Both are very exclusive as I will only take a handful each year.

I find so much joy, excitement and nerves at every shoot.  By the time I hand over the completed work, I am so excited for the next.  I can’t seem to get enough, and I’m ready for your session! You can contact me HERE!
